Crafters Companion Adorables

 A very good afternoon the sun has been shining here this morning. I love these new Adorable stamps from Crafters Companion. Living on a small island by the seaside this set really appealed to me. Perfect for seaside creations.

 I stamped the boat and then added the girl over the top using Collall 3D glue . I crimped Crumb Cake card and added Ribbon and twine and a scrummy button from SEW SWEET. The star and shell add to the effect.
I cut out the fishing nets (I can't beleive how many fishing nets I sold at work last week) and popped it behind the button.

I can't believe how lucky I am to live where I do. Mum and Dad moved here when I was 2 and I will always be eternally grateful for that. Can't beat living by the sea, the sounds the smell there is no place like it in the world. I generated the sentiment on the computer and punched out using Stampin Up oval and scalloped oval punches.

I'm entering todays card into the following challenges ~

Lovely & soft. The use of the blue for matting picks out the blue of buttons beautifully. Lovely detail with those shells too.

This is a perfect summery card. I have good memories of Millport, bikes and ginger beer ice drinks. Is the cafe at the front still there?
